I read this in the 7th grade originally and I was really taken by the description of soda pop as a drink to be describe in a medival sort of society! That is what kick started it for me learning to really describe things in my writing. ( )

I first read this book when I was in the sixth grade, and it changed my life. Not only was this the first science fiction story I'd ever read, it was my introduction to the idea that where you come from shapes how you see and interpret the world.

The story is presented as an intersection of fairy tale and sci-fi adventure, with the medieval residents of the planet Andrecia interpreting the high tech tools of an advanced civilization as a "dragon".

Elana, the story's heroine, is a somewhat rash but deeply principled young woman who accepts the consequences for all her actions and who faces the conflicts between heart and duty with a clear vision. The two other two p.o.v. characters share her idealistic qualities, each expressing them through the lense of his own unique background. ( )

I enjoyed this book when I first read it over 20 years ago, and I enjoyed it again today. The syntax and dialogue occasionally feels dated (the book was first published in 1970), but the ideas are as topical as ever. ( )

I got halfway through this before I gave up (I'm 53 now, life is too short to keep reading books one's not enjoying!)

It could have been titled "Ode to Mansplaining" as the all-knowing father goes on for pages, chapter after chapter, hectoring his daughter about stuff that she ought to know (to be fair, she doesn't seem to know the stuff she ought to know, but that's another issue!) The viewpoint is split for the most part between the characters who think they're in a fantasy, and the characters who know they're in a sci-fi novel, but you get nothing added from the other viewpoint--the SF characters know exactly what the fantasy characters are thinking, so reading their viewpoint is redundant.

Other nits: I'm sure a "higher" civilization (itself an outmoded concept) can come up with better ways to save a planet than this screwy plan, the main protagonist is apparently of marriageable/university age, but acts/thinks/feels about 10, nobody's actually interesting (apparently they find each other interesting, but for no clear reason), and an early death is dispensed with / accepted so casually as to put one off our supposed heroes right away (and was also stupid).

So mostly, I found it annoying, although I imagine it seemed radical in its day "Hey, kids, other people's cultures are valuable and you shouldn't colonize them!")

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s) ( )

This is a SF book which explores different levels of civilization and the relationships between them. There is the Federation, which is so advanced that they try to watch over the other planets, the Empire, which is advanced enough to be spreading to new planets, but which looks at other less advanced civilizations as not being human, and the Andrecians, who live in a basically feudal society that has not yet discovered much in the way of advanced technology. And yet the main characters in the book often cross these boundaries, helping to advance their own ideas of civilization. I liked the anthropological aspects of it, and the ideas of science vs magic. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

"This is a wonderfully complex story that weaves together three different narratives, exposing three different levels of cultural development. Walker’s new edition of this long out-of-print title now has a gorgeous cover by Leo and Diane Dillon."

"Now reissued in an elegant new edition ... this novel is science fantasy at its best, using the setting of an imagined world to challenge our thinking about our own world. Both thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining."
hinzugefügt von SylviaE | bearbeitenHorn Book, Terri Schmitz (Sep 1, 2001)
 
"Not just a novel for young adults but also one of the finest sf novels ever written--a classic of the genre. The only possible complaint one can make is that, after finishing it, you will likely find yourself disinclined for a while to pick up anything else in the genre for fear it will, as it were, taste of ashes. In sum, it is almost impossible to convey how good this book is. Please just read it."

"Engdahl's thoughtful and enjoyable story has been republished for a whole new generation to discover. The story has a subtle allegorical premise that is still valid even after all this time. Engdahl successfully weaves a beautiful story from the perspectives of three distinct civilizations at three different levels of technological maturity.... Both an enchanting coming-of-age story and a compelling moral lesson that teaches respect for other cultures."
hinzugefügt von SylviaE | bearbeitenBarnes and Noble Review, Sierra Phillips (Mar 1, 2001)
 
"Sylvia Engdahl's Enchantress from the Stars is a much more sophisticated book: a book about people, not gadgets or lizardoids.... The huge themes of love, respect for individuals and for cultures in all their diversity, colonialism, the responsibilities of power, and the effect of self-confidence on our ability to do things, are subtly embodied in the action. This is a fascinating novel, likely to appeal to a thoughtful 14 or 15 year old rather than to younger readers."
